Lisa Dosch, Motion Picture Editors Guild - Local 700
Alison Balter at MS Access Solutions developed the application that helps us to properly service all of our members. This program handles billing, payments, tracking of jobs worked, available list, and other important data about our members. The system automates many tasks that were previously performed manually, allowing our employees to more cost-effectively use their time. This client/server system is used by employees in our Springfield IL and New York offices. MS Access Solutions and their staff worked with us to develop the necessary specifications and design documents, and then programmed, tested, and implemented the application throughout our organization.

Moving Things Around
To move a single control with its attached label, you don’t need to select it first. Place your mouse over the object and click and drag. An outline appears, indicating the object’s new location. When the object reaches the position you want, release the mouse button. The attached label automatically moves with its corresponding control.
To move more than one object at a time, you must first select the objects you want to move. Select the objects using one of the methods outlined in the preceding section. Place your mouse pointer over any of the selected objects and click and drag. An outline appears, indicating the proposed new position for the objects. Release the mouse button when you have reached the position you want for the objects.
Sometimes you want to move a control independent of its attached label, which requires a special technique. If you click to select a control, such as a text box, and then you click and drag, both the control and the attached label move as a unit, and the relationship between them is maintained. If you place your mouse pointer over the larger handle in the upper-left corner of the object and click and drag here, the control moves independently of its attached label, and the relationship between the objects changes.
Aligning Objects to One Another
Access makes it easy to align objects. Figure 5.12 shows several objects that aren’t aligned. Notice that the attached labels of three of the objects are selected. If you align the attached labels, the controls (in this case, text boxes) remain in their original positions. If you select the text boxes as well, they will try to align with the attached labels. Because Access doesn’t allow the objects to overlap, the text boxes end up immediately next to their attached labels. To left-align any objects (even objects of different types), select the objects you want to align and then click to select the Arrange tab. Click Align Left in the Control Alignment group. The selected objects are then aligned (see Figure 5.13). You can align the left, right, top, or bottom edges of any objects on a form.
Don’t confuse the Control Alignment feature with the Align tools (Align Left, Center, Align Right) on the Home tab. The Control Alignment feature aligns objects one to the other, but the Align tools on the Home tab provide justification for the text inside an object.
Snap to Grid
The Snap to Grid feature determines whether objects snap to the gridlines on the form as you move and size them. This feature is found on the Arrange tab. If you turn off this feature (it’s a toggle), objects can be moved and sized without regard for the gridlines.
I prefer to leave the Snap to Grid feature on at all times. I use a special trick to temporarily deactivate the feature when needed: I hold down my Ctrl key as I click and drag to move objects. The Snap to Grid setting is then ignored.
